The Road Back Program was started in 1999 and with well over 50,000 people now off addictive medication using this program, we are the largest out-patient drug withdrawal program in the world. Over the past decade the program has changed considerably with new research, breakthroughs and by listening to what people using the program have told us. All the clinical studies in the world by medical professionals are worthless if they do not lead to a person feeling better and doing better in life regarding Depakote side effects and Depakote withdrawal.
There was a time not so long ago the medical community felt Depakote was not addictive. In 2012, the Surgeon General for the U.S. Army acknowledged Depakote was not just addictive but he went further to remove Depakote from the psychoactive drug list approved to give our troops. Well intentioned physicians may still believe Depakote is not addictive but this does not make them a bad physician, it does mean they are still uninformed about Depakote.
The point I wish to make with the above text is; clinical studies may be accurate or they may even be completely false, we at The Road Back as well as physicianâ€™s need to listen to each of you. If the goal is to assist people off Depakote and have the person feel real well during the Depakote tapering, we need to listen to you and not clinical studies only. This program was developed by taking Depakote clinical studies and putting that information to use. Some of the information has worked quite well, while other information turned out to be worthless.
An example of this regarding Depakote: If Depakote is used for a prolonged period of time the Depakote will deplete the B vitamin biotin from the body. A deficiency of biotin will cause numbness or tingling of the extremities, a reaction to loud noise or a reaction to bright light which could also include seizures. This is a biotin deficiency and not a medical problem. Put the right amount of biotin back in the body and these symptoms vanish. It is that simple.
This program is a culmination of 18-years of work, 18-years of failure and 18-years of success. None of us are exactly the same; the Depakote side effects you may be experiencing may not be the same Depakote side effects experienced by others, how you do while tapering the Depakote may not be the same for others, you may be able to taper Depakote a little faster than average or you may need to take this a little slower.
There are some basics that apply to all people though when it comes to being able to withdrawal from Depakote. We take those basics, the list of side effects from the Depakote drug approval process and from these, you have our program. Read through the Depakote side effect list found below on this page, you may have quite a few of them or only a small quantity. Either way, the program is designed to guide you through the Depakote withdrawal process.
You start out with what we call the Pre-Taper. The Pre-Taper are things you start doing before you ever reduce the Depakote.
Two of the side effects that tend to be common with each person taking Depakote are daytime anxiety and insomnia. Unless we can handle these two side effects, there really would not be a Depakote withdrawal program. These two side effects are that debilitating when left out of control. Once the daytime anxiety and insomnia are under control, other Depakote side effects you may be experiencing have a chance of simply going away on their own because they were anxiety and sleep related.
It would be hard to argue that constant anxiety on top of no sleep would not cause a person stress. We have gene in our cells called the JNK gene. This gene becomes too active when stress is chronic and this over activation of the JNK gene will lead to other body problems and some of those problems can be mentally related in time. So we also want to reduce the over activation of the JNK gene during the pre-taper and keep this gene in check throughout the taper process as well.
Natural supplements can be used to regulate the JNK gene, anxiety and insomnia. The Depakote creates a metabolic disorder bringing some enzymes too high and when the flow of the metabolic system becomes stuck or flowing too profusely the body canâ€™t handle it and a cascading effect takes place. You may become anxious due to the calcium firing erratically or by the adrenals out of balance or a host of proteins being too abundant or even too few.
You will start the Pre-Taper by taking a supplement called JNK Capsules. This supplement contains botanicals that have been proven to regulate the JNK gene, reduce stress, and put back in the cells what the benzodiazepines have stripped out and more. As stated earlier, long term use of a benzodiazepine will create an inadequate amount of the B vitamin biotin. Biotin has been included in the JNK Capsule formula to address this issue.
A metabolic disorder will take place with Depakote usage in an area called nitric oxide and nitric oxide synthase. These are also known as NO/NOS. Too much NO will overwhelm NOS and then a substance called NMDA will go out of balance and this will lead to the misfiring of calcium. Here you have the rapid start of anxiety and the start of insomnia.
